"Masterwork bar" redirects here. For other bars used in the creation of masterwork armour, see Alloy bar
A glorious bar is a bar used in the creation of masterwork equipment. It requires level 99 Smithing and is made by folding a partially folded alloy bar 1,001 times at any anvil except the anvil in Ashdale. One glorious bar is required to make one masterwork plate, requiring 10,000 progress to complete.
50 of each of the 10 core bars are smelted at a furnace to 50 concentrated alloy bars, then smelted to 10 enriched alloy bars which are then smelted to one immaculate alloy bar. This bar is smithed at an anvil to form a partially folded alloy bar in sets of 60 folds, for minimum of 17 sets which takes 20 minutes. After 1,001 folds it turns into a single glorious bar.
In addition to masterwork armour, glorious bars are also used for the creation of multiple other items, including glorious silvthril chains for making the blessed flask and artificer's measure, masterwork Spears of Annihilation, dark ice shards and dark ice slivers. Glorious bars are also used in upgrading custom-fit trimmed masterwork armour to its spiked variant.

- patch 4 February 2019 (Update):
- The make-X counter banner now correctly updates to "Smithing" when folding masterwork bars.
- The name, glorious, and the process of having to fold the bar 1,001 times is in reference to the Ken-Sama meme, which is the source of the misquote: "Glorious Nippon steel, folded over 1,000 times."
